Education

Maxence is a PhD Candidate at the University of Cambridge. Prior to starting his doctoral studies, Maxence completed a Magister Juris from the University of Oxford in 2017, and a Master’s degree in private international law and international commercial law from Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne University in 2015. Maxence originally graduated in 2013 with a Bachelor in law and in applied foreign languages (English and Italian) from the University of Grenoble, where he ranked first overall. He also spent a year on exchange at McGill University in 2013-2014.

Professional Experience

Maxence is admitted to practice, and has work experience in France, Canada, and England. Between 2018 and 2021, Maxence was an associate in the international arbitration team of Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer in Paris. In this role, he represented clients in several international arbitrations under a variety of applicable laws in the energy, new technologies, oil and gas, and construction sectors. Maxence also acted for clients before French courts, including the Paris Tribunal of Commerce, the Paris Court of Appeal and the French Court of Cassation. Prior to becoming a lawyer, he trained in the IP and international arbitration departments of two leading international law firms in Paris. In addition to his practice experience, Maxence worked as a research assistant for Professor Richard Gold at McGill’s Center for Intellectual Property Policy in 2014, and was a Teaching Fellow in private international law at Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne University in 2017-2018. He currently teaches intellectual property law for several Cambridge colleges.

Fields of research

Maxence’s PhD research focuses on the interplay among international arbitration, private international law, and intellectual property. This builds on his previous work at Oxford and Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne, which dealt with the arbitrability of copyright disputes and the applicable law to copyright ownership. Aside from his PhD, Maxence regularly publishes on arbitration, private international law and intellectual property topics, with an emphasis on the comparative aspects of these disciplines.
